Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

LAURA by Vera Caspary

Laura - Vera Caspary
Basis for the movie Laura, the book is written in three voices--Waldo, Mark McPherson, and Laura.  Each has their own point of view on the people and actions that occur. 
I enjoyed the book.  It is different from the movie but the basics are there.  Of course, you get a deeper feel for the people and the actions in the book because you get the thought processes that are not available in the book.  Waldo is a piece of work.  I'm glad Laura finally sees through him and Shelby, her fiancé.  Mark finally figures it all out and comes to the rescue.  This really give a sense of time and place.  A piece of noir.  Still worth reading.
